In a move to curb rising cases of coronavirus, the Uttar Pradesh government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has decided to introduce a 'mini-lockdown' formula in the state. As part of the mini-lockdown scheme, the UP government will impose weekend lockdown in order to control the spread of coronavirus cases. This means that lockdown in the state will remain imposed on Saturday and Sunday every week.
With the introduction of mini-lockdown formula, offices and markets will function for only 5 days a week and remain closed on Saturday and Sunday. More to follow.
